Flood­ing chaos at hospi­tal

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen) - - NEWS -

The north’s big­gest hospi­tal was thrown into chaos yes­ter­day af­ter a base­ment flood led to its com­puter sys­tem be­ing shut down.

About 30 op­er­a­tions and up to 60 other pro­ce­dures were can­celled at Raig­more Hospi­tal in In­ver­ness – and fur­ther dis­rup­tion was ex­pected to­day.

A large build-up of rain water on a flat roof on Sun­day night and Mon­day morn­ing led to a leak into a base­ment room where many of the hospi­tal’s com­puter servers were lo­cated. The servers were switched off for elec­tri­cal safety rea­sons.
